  • Great, scenic, and well kept park! There are kayaking and paddle boat rentals for cheap. Bikes are free, but just need to be signed in and out. Refrigerated water bottles and bug spray are available for a reasonable price. The trails can be confusing, but the rangers there are incredibly helpful and friendly. Will be coming back again to explore!
  • We loved this place. Great campsites and clean bathrooms. Free bike rentals and reasonably priced boat rentals. Close enough to the beach for a day trip. Great bike trails and disc golf course. Verizon Cell service was great here. T mobile has no service.
